AUSTIN,TX — Concertal™ Systems will demonstrate a cloud-based System Design Automation (SDA) platform for designing and simulating new system-on-chip (SoC), application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), and field programmable gate array (FPGA) designs at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Booth #1421.

“Design complexity, development costs and time-to-market demands are more challenging than ever, driving the need for rapid exploration and higher levels of design automation and verification,” says Bob Ledzius, founder and chief executive officer of Concertal. “With over 25% of new designs now containing more than 50-million gates, SDA provides a way to manage out-of-control design and verification costs due to increasing design complexities.”

Introducing Concertal SDA

SDA leverages the growing use of intellectual property (IP) in system design. Automated IP integration and verification design capabilities provided through a collaborative web interface addresses higher levels of design automation and the need for the industry to work closer together, both within and beyond traditional organizational boundaries.

Concertal’s patent-pending SDA provides a platform that includes methods of operation, architecture implementation, and tools to functionally connect IP. Together, this allows representing the SoC in a relational database accessible through a web browser that can drive server-side automated full-chip IP integration and verification. SDA simplifies and accelerates the build and simulation new designs, opening the door to expanding front-end chip design to those without deep design experience.

The Concertal team will demonstrate SDA on the DAC exhibit floor June 19-21 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas. Demonstrations can be scheduled by making requests through email to, or contacting Bob Ledzius directly at

The ESD Alliance’s Assistance

In launching SDA, Ledzius commended the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance, an international association of companies providing goods and services throughout the semiconductor design ecosystem, for its critical role in the development and delivery of the product. “The Alliance events promote opportunities to better understand the semiconductor design ecosystem’s common challenges. Bob Smith has been especially helpful, serving with the Concertal advisory team and helping us to define how SDA can be delivered for the industry to innovate together.”
